I am an oncologist treating patients with blood cancers. My areas of expertise include hematology, geriatric oncology and multiple myeloma. I serve as assistant professor in the clinical department of internal medicine and I am the Director of the Blood Cancer and Aging Program. I conduct research on biologic age – rather than chronological age – to better understand a patient's ability to tolerate aggressive cancer therapies. Uncovering specific biomarkers to determine biologic age is challenging, but I'm confident this knowledge will ultimately lead to increased patient survival and improved quality of life.

At the OSUCCC – James, we are committed to addressing the specific needs of older adults with cancer. We recently opened a Geriatric Hematology clinic that uses innovative aging research and subspecialist consultants to provide patients with personalized care.

Nationally, I am panel member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Older Adult Oncology Guidelines, Cancer and Aging Research Group, and I also take part in an international investigation of age and bone marrow transplant outcomes. My research is funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) National Cancer Institute (NCI), Alliance Clinical Trials Network and NCCN. My work has been published in several medical journals including Journal of Geriatric Oncology, Clinical Cancer Research and Journal of Clinical Oncology.

The OSUCCC – James is truly special. We strive every day to provide state of the art care while focusing on each person’s specific cancer. We’re all focused on the goal of one day living in a world free of cancer.

Industry Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 03/25/2016, Dr. Rosko has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
